Looking for those inkless, perforating library stamps.

Sometimes, one of the first pages of a library book will bear an identifying stamp made of perforations punched through by a special tool. This practice seems to have disappeared, and Googling for it has only frustrated me. What is the tool called and where can I find one? [more inside]

Gardening tool kit?

Say you had a team of three to five people working once per week over a year doing a gardening project on one acre of land and poly tunnels in a cold-to-moderate climate with clay and loamy soil (England). What tools would they need a weekly basis and what tools would they need on a once-per-year or quarterly basis?

Identification of this tool?

Can anyone tell me what this is? I've had this for many years but now am clearing out my "collections" so my kids won't have to. Before I send this off I'd like to know what it is, and that would probably help interest someone in having it. Only marking is "Germany".

Not very Technical

FIREFOX/WINDOWS 7: When using Firefox, where is the bar that includes options of "file", "edit", "view", "favorites" and "tools".? It disappeared! When I access Internet Explorer, no problem, these options are all available and visible, but on Firefox (which I prefer) it seems to have disappeared.
